The wrong things I’ve done,
The guilt that haunts my mind,
Behind a mask of lies,
Feels like a roller-coaster ride,
To hell, the place for sinners to reside.
All my thoughts, selfish and proud,
The pain and tears I’ve caused a mound,
I am worse than a criminal,
Headed for the perishing lake,
And Jesus, whose heart for me aches.
Jesus, you I forgot all about,
My sins you could have blotted out,
If you I had on my side,
But instead I chose the devil’s path,
Forever to face God’s wrath.
Then came a strong mighty wave,
My stained soul to save,
God’s mighty foot, my sins trampled o’er,
They are at the ocean floor,
To surface no more.
Pardoned, a captive set free!
My sins all gone, never to find me,
Erased; now I’m a pretty sight to see,
And with faith wings I can soar,
Straight to Heaven’s door.
When the storms toss you afar
Shipwrecked with a broken sail
There is a King who names all the stars
A prisoner of burdens He will bail.
Tell Jesus, tell Him in a prayer
In tears still He will hear
Go close to whisper
All the things causing a stir.
There were times I too despaired
And sought the wrong listening ear
Jesus, a friend no one compared
For you, time He will always share.
Never think He doesn’t know
Your state of pained unrest
Did you forget He has divine control
O’er the troubled tempest?
It takes nothing to have Him near
Just as you are, He sure won’t mind
For since He remains Lord o’er the waves and air
Everlasting peace you will find.
